Healthy Juicer Wheatgrass Juicer
This Healthy Juicer is the most affordable and efficient wheatgrass juicer available. If you know about the extensive health benefits of juicing and if you have been juicing for while we can agree that not all juicers can handle the leafy greens very well. This juicer is specifically designed to handle the leafy greens.
There are two kinds of juicers available on the market right now, the centrifugal juicers and the masticating juicers, the former crush and the latter squeeze. So the main benefit of masticating juicers is that they crush the fruits and vegetables as opposed to shredding and squeezing the juice like in a washing machine.
Masticating juicers extract more juice and they also put out less heat than the centrifugal juicers that work at very high speeds (up to 13,000 rpm). The heat the centrifugal juicers put out can damage the enzymes and minerals contained in the fruits and vegetables you are juicing.
This manual wheatgrass juicer does an excellent job crushing tough plant cell walls and releasing vital enzymes. Compare minced garlic to chopped garlic for instance. It is hard to grasp how much more health benefits you get with a masticating juicer, but all we know is that they get more enzymes out of fruits and the enzymes allow for better absorption of nutrients.
This manual wheatgrass juicer is much cheaper than an electric one and it is really easy to clean and great for traveling. It measures 9.2 x 8 x 5.6 inches and it weighs 3 pounds. It comes with a one-year limited warranty. All the parts are made of extra tough Polycarbonate and it is FDA approved.
When juicing cabbage with this wheatgrass juicer, you can add a little bit of olive oil over the chopped cabbage as this eliminates the groaning which happens due to the friction between the rubbery leaves and the body of the juicer.
Some people think that the fact that the juicer is manual is a con; on the contrary, it is a great advantage as you can take it anywhere cos it uses no electricity. Not to mention that an electric juicer like this one is seriously more expensive.
It is very easy to assemble this wheatgrass juicer as the instructions are intuitive and easy to follow. It also comes with a DVD that demonstrates how to put all the pieces together. This is another great advantage because you can pause the DVD, rewind or watch it in slow motion to get the job done as quickly as possible.
